Engaging the same rhythmic propulsion established in her first book, Cheryl Pallant's Into Stillness offers a compelling meditation on the sacredness of the body in the shadow of atrocity. Her kinetic poetry swirls historical fragments with dream, memory, flesh, violence, humor and ecstasy. In proselike poems that surprise linguistically with their twists of meaning, Into Stillness explores the tension between self and other, existence and death, the word and its silence.
